Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Takes a Knee on the Floor of Congress

This leftist campaign of “taking a knee” has spread far beyond the NFL.

We watched in horror last night as the entire Dallas Cowboys team, along with their management, took a symbolic knee to support failed quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other un-American activists who protest the Star-Spangled Banner. Players who had no problem saluting the flag during President Barack Obama’s eight years in office suddenly take great offense towards America now that Donald Trump is in the White House.

Now, liberals in Washington, D.C., have joined in.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), made a political statement by taking a knee on the floor of Congress during a special order of the Congressional Black Caucus last night. And she used the opportunity to slam President Trump.

This is outrageous:

She claimed this was to “honor” the professional sports athletes who also kneeled. As Lee said, “I kneel in front of the flag and on this floor, I kneel in honor of the First Amendment, I kneel because the flag is a symbol of freedom, I kneel because I am going to stand against racism, I kneel because I will stand with those young men and I’ll stand with our soldiers and I’ll stand with America because I kneel.”

Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), another member of the Congressional Black Caucus, tweeted his support. He opined, “There is nothing wrong with kneeling down to stand up against injustice. It’s protected by the Constitution.”

This is unacceptable. Too many Americans have fought and died for our liberties. Sports are supposed to be unifying, where we all stand and salute the greatest country on earth: the United States of America.

NFL players have their First Amendment rights. But that does not protect them from repercussions and booing. The NFL is a business, and they have already suffered millions in lost revenue from bad television ratings and slower ticket sales. After this latest battle with President Trump, we can safely assume things will get worse.

What do you think about Sheila Jackson Lee kneeling on the floor of the U.S. House? Please leave us a comment (below) and tell us.

  • Since it is the job of Congress to work for the United States, represented by our flag and for us, the people, taking a knee in congress means they no longer want the job. Tell her to pack her stuff and hit the road PDQ. It is referred to as "biting the hand that fees you", stupid, arrogant POS.

  • What do you expect from Negro Senators and Congressmen and women. They hate the United States of America that's why they loved their White/Negro President and backed in everything he did to destroy o
    our Country.

  • It's not kneeling we kneel when praying to show meekness and subservience to the LORD! It is doing it during the time set apart to honor the country that has done so much to honor and rise these people up! Shame on them!!!

  • She is using her federal position to be a political activist. This is covered under the Hatch Act and is forbidden. She should be investigated, and censured for her behavior.

  • These Dirt Bags Have Violated Their Oaths Of Office And Should Be Recalled Home For An Ass Kicking. They have Proven That They Hate America And Her Laws May They All Die Like The Traitor McCain Soon In A Pyscho Ward With A Brain Full Of Cancer.

  • Unacceptable? Too many Americans have fought and died for our liberties? Um, many of those who fought and died were blacks and btw, black slaves built the "people's house". You know, that WH. Blacks have EARNED their freedom and their rights, but they still have to fight for em. THAT's unacceptable!
